Skilled interviewers may spend years honing their craft, but sometimes all you really need to unlock a person's secrets is the quirky mind of a small child. Or in this case, several small children.
In the BBC Radio 1 segment above, Emma Thompson follows in the footsteps of Sarah Silverman and Tom Hardy by answering a series of "difficult questions" from kids — with topics ranging from the environment to what it takes to become rich.
8-year-old Finn from Glasgow is even cheeky enough to ask about the best onscreen kisser Thompson has ever encountered.

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, the social media company that's been under scrutiny for possibly allowing fake news to influence the 2016 U.S. general election (the same very close election that Donald Trump won), had a previously undisclosed dinner with the president of the United States, it has been revealed.

But especially Joe Biden's... uh... bad, bad, bad word choice when discussing legislation aiming to end violence against women.

"What are you doing? What are you doing, Joe?" said an almost speechless Noah. Read more...More about Joe Biden, Democratic Debate, The Daily Show, Democrats, and Trevor NoahStephen Colbert breaks down the latest 'explosive' impeachment testimony
Another day, another impeachment testimony to add to the mounting piles of evidence.
Taking the stand on Wednesday was U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, who was quick to confirm a quid pro quo before mentioning the names of a number of other senior officials who were apparently aware of the situation — including Mike Pence. Yeah, it set the internet on fire.
"The vice president nodded, like, you know, he heard what I said," said Sondland, describing a meeting where he'd spoken openly about Ukraine in Pence's presence.
"Now keep in mind nodding is the biggest movement Mike Pence can make," responded Colbert on Wednesday night's The Late Show. "If he moves his body any more than that the devil will accuse him of da...Give yourself a boost with these supplements on sale
